Another year has passed since my last blog post.
The weather has been odd this year in Virginia. We had a mild winter and heat and drought this summer. Many of our plants are dead or dying. The grass is dry and crispy.
We wait for rain.
Ever faithful is our old pear tree. We don’t use pesticides and the pears aren’t particularly pretty but this tree always bears more than we can harvest. The extra doesn’t go to waste the bear, deer, raccoons, as well as our chickens and peacocks, eat any that I don’t harvest.
It is just a beautiful ordinary moment.
